    • Exedore and Breetai: Exedore: "We know they have..." Breetai: "...reflex weapons!" "Precisely, and this makes them very dangerous. So we must exercise extreme caution."
      In the original Japanese version, the term "reaction weapons" was used. At the time it was still a bit of a taboo for the "good guys" to use nuclear weapons or atomic weapons on an animated series, so the term reaction was used in place of nuclear.

      When the script was translated for Robotech, the word "reflex" was used in place of "reaction". In Robotech the term "reflex" has come to mean powerful "smart" weapons.
